with apologies to Ogden Nash...
Tools by Pennen rarely show up in our area, but here's an old ratchet that I don't think fits into the Alloy Artifacts proto tool page. I can't quite make out the number in the middle, possibly MFG1661 USA?

Thank you very much for the Alloy Artifacts link, Mr. G. Hours o' fun!
The 1661 is covered on that Alloy Artifacts page: http://alloy-artifacts.org/proto-empire.html#penens and scroll down a bitI don't think there's much to say about it other than "it's a 1/2-inch ratchet and it does what a 1/2-inch ratchet is supposed to do."I don't know why, and I'm sure it's unfair, but in my mind I've always seen "Challenger" brand as a homeowner rather than a professional brand. Maybe when I was 16 I worked with a really bad mechanic who had a Challenger socket or something.
